Background
The Society traces its origins to a Museum board organized in 1961, and its home, the County Museum, which was opened in 1980.  The historical society was formed in 1981 to meet a growing demand for genealogical and historical research.  In 1986 the Society opened Magnolia Grange to the public as a historic house museum.  The Society has its headquarters and research library in historic Castlewood.  It also oversees several Civil War sites.
 
With eleven active committees and 120 active volunteers, the CHS presents a vital resource to our community, our local government and public and private school system.

Board Chair Statement
History is our obligation to the future; the best way to know where the county is going is to know where we have been.  Increasingly, budget cuts have forced our all-volunteer Board of Directors to become innovative fundraisers. That is our biggest challenge.  We must ensure that our Directors are driven by the belief that saving our sites and programs is in the best interest of all Chesterfield residents.  My own passion to save the history of my adopted county is driven by my fascination with its founding, as the second oldest successful English settlement in the New World.
